Have no idea what this incompetent person is still allowed to butcher patience!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS IDIOT!!!! I can never have a normal bowl movement without bleeding and screaming!! Never had this problem till this idiot helped himself and performed a full Hemorrhoidectomy to fill his surgeries for the slow month!

He was the in-call surgeon for my emergency appendectomy. I have recommended him several times, and will continue to do so! Fantastic surgeon with A+ bedside manner!
Dr. Ford took care of my father for a colon resection due to cancer. He is extremely competent and thorough, but the biggest reason I would recommend him to anyone is his bedside manner. He is compassionate, kind, caring and takes the time to explain things in detail to the patient and family. I felt very confident entrusting my Dad's care to him.
